CliftonLarsonAllen Update

Good news for downtown St. Louis: CliftonLarsonAllen is consolidating its St. Louis offices, moving 50 employees downtown from Clayton!  In order to accomodate them, the accounting firm is currently in negotiations to add an extra 9,000 sf to its current 25,000-sf space at 600 Washington.  There are also plans to increase headcount through new hires over the course of the next 12 months.

Perhaps more financial services firms will follow CliftonLarsonAllen's lead and make the move downtown from the suburbs.  RubinBrown?  Brown Smith Wallace?

One additional interesting tidbit mentioned in the Business Journal's article on CliftonLarsonAllen's expansion is that there are apparently proposals out to fill roughly have of the remaining 150,000 sf of vacant space at 600 Washington.  Hopefully we'll be hearing of new tenants signing on soon.
